    Hey Kaz

    Could you provide us with some details? Windows & SpywareGuard Versions?

    And I cannot comment about whether it’s appropriate to take action on SpywareGuard findings, I don’t use the product so I can’t actually say if this Software is accurate or not.

    Yes I have all the Updates. But the last 2 days I have not had a problem with it shutting down again. it must have just been a glitch that has f0xed itself up.
    Thanks everyone trying to help.

    Well I'm glad the problem seems to have fixed itself (although I can't reproduce it in testing).

    And in regard to this...

    Deleting would be the right choice - RapidBlaster is a tricky beast. (There shouldn't be any false positives in SpywareGuard's detection - and that's a known RapidBlaster location in any case. :))

    Best regards,
